Make 2021 The Year To Defeat The U.S. Blockade Against Cuba!

Dear U.S.-Cuba Normalization International Conference supporter:

The U.S. economic blockade of Cuba has reached unprecedented cruelty, But never has the possibility of ending this economic war been closer. Cuba has become a critical ally in the global fight against the out of control COVID-19 pandemic, imagine what Cuba do without the blockade!

The process for united action to end the U.S. blockade in 2021 begins this weekend, But we need you. Facebook banned the event page for this conference and threatens to unpublish supporter's pages to chill our movement.

Please forward this to your lists, call your friends, members and co-fighters, have a watch party, discuss and find ways to engage in the coming months.

There is room in this boat for everyone, a seat and an oar to pull in the direction to #UnblockCuba2021. An overview of the steps forward over these past difficult months and a forward projection of actions are part of this weekend's 3 - part conference outlined below.

All the sessions will include Q&A and Discussion
